This webinar will introduce practical strategies which can be easily implemented by SNAs and teachers in the classroom to support students who display challenging behaviour. Challenging behaviour can disrupt learning for the whole classroom and can create a tense, stressful environment. The way we respond to challenging behaviour will also impact other students in the class and so we must be mindful of the role we play in maintaining our own regulation while addressing the behaviour.
We will discuss ways in which we can:
SNAs should come away from this webinar with a variety of strategies to trial in the classroom.

This webinar will outline why movement breaks and brain breaks need to be an integral part of the school day. Research tells us that the average learner, regardless of age needs to briefly move their bodies every 20-30 minutes, and many learn the most effectively with movement breaks every 15 minutes. This enables learners to maintain focus, integrate learning across both of the brain’s hemispheres, enter information into memory, and avoid feeling overwhelmed or information overload. These short breaks can provide efficiency in learning, stress relief, mood enhancement, boost relationships and class cohesion. This webinar is packed with ideas for movement breaks, brain breaks and sensory breaks to add to your day.
